In recent years, with the increase of the unemployment rate, employability has become a popular issue for different industries, as it can enhance the employment rate for industries and project industrial growth. This study examines shipping-related industries using the Rasch model, to construct scientific evaluation items in relation to the professional techniques and skills of the shipping-related industries. It further validates whether the generalized employability in the shipping-related industries is needed. Research findings are reorganized as employability indicators of the shipping-related industries. The findings are expected to serve as references for the shipping industry to evaluate new employees and for departments within the shipping industry to plan necessary courses. It is suggested that students who intend to enter shipping-related industries should enhance their foreign language proficiency, while the individual department focus on the work attitude, team work in the workplace, and virtue and personal emotion management.
